Include HTML in Wordpress SideBar.php

I want to include some HTML within the sidebar.php and I get the error below.

My code in sidebar.php:
<?php include 'mypage.html'; ?>


Error msg:
PHP Warning:  include() [<a href='function.include'>function.include</a>]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in D:\Sites\mysite.co.uk\public_html\blog\wp-content\themes\sduk\sidebar.php on line 81
PHP Warning:  include(http://www.mysite.co.uk/includes/mypage.html) [<a href='function.include'>function.include</a>]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in D:\Sites\mysite.co.uk\public_html\blog\wp-content\themes\sduk\sidebar.php on line 81

Can someone help?

I don't want to change it to .php as I want to use the same include in an .ASP page.

Thanks.

Try renaming your page from mypage.html to mypage.php and include it.

Also, mypage.html must be in the same folder as sidebar.php (sorry for the post above, failed to read the question entirely)

It does seem to work if I put the file in the same folder. I should have been more accurate with my question. The code I was using was:

<?php include 'http://www.mydomain.com/inc/mypage.html'; ?>

and this gave the error. If I put the file in the same folder as sidebar.php and use the following it works.

<?php include 'mypage.html'; ?>

I'd rather not have it in the same folder. Is there a way I can use the exact URL?

For example, if sidebar.php is in root folder and mypage.html is in inc folder, include inc/mypage.html

If you need to go up one level (for example if you have sidebar.php in root/folser/sidebar.php and mypage is in root/inc/mypage.html) include '../inc/mypage.html'
../ is equal to 'up' button in windows explorer.
